Further Extracurricular Success
Fingal Student Enterprise Programme
Loreto Balbriggan has had a long and very successful history with Fingal Enterprise Awards and this year the school’s success continued with two of our student enterprises scooping two of the top six prizes at the Awards ceremony last Wednesday 15th March. Congratulations to Manaal Garana and Izzy Gaughan whose company ‘Reglossed’ came 2nd the intermediate category and to Molly Smyth, and Jemma Thomas of ‘Plantable Posts’ who came 2nd in the Senior Category All students put in a huge amount of hard work and effort into their ‘Dragons Den’ style presentations while also making sure that their stalls were the most eye catching and appealing. Well done to all our other participating student enterprises; ‘A&E Made’, ‘Pinsable’, ‘Deco Case’, and ‘FFE Haircare’ who made it through to this stage of the competition, a huge achievement! Special thanks to Ms. Gartland and Ms. Synnott for their continued support, encouragement and guidance to the girls.
Fóroige NFTE Dublin Regional Finals
The success continues for our Junior, Minor and Senior A teams who all won their respective Northside League finals on Wednesday. A special mention to our 6th year students; Aoife Gleeson, Caoimhe McCann, Nicole Ford, Aisling Patterson, Hailey Clark, Hannah Tighe and Erika Mitchell who played their last match for Loreto Balbriggan. Their contribution and dedication to hockey over the last 6 years cannot be understated, and we will all miss them as they move forward with a bright future in hockey ahead of them.
On Thursday 1st years and 2nd years hosted the Loreto semi-finals. Playing against Loreto Swords the Minors and Juniors succeeded in winning both matches and now proceed to the Loreto finals next week. We would like to wish the team the very best of luck.
Congratulations to the Minor and Junior basketball teams who had a fantastic day in Oblate Hall. The Minors had a nail biting match that ended with a win of 27-26, securing them the 3rd place spot in the All Ireland finals. The Juniors fought hard right until the end but missed out on the title of the East League winners, coming in 2nd place. Congratulations to Portmarnock CS on winning. Both teams have their Loreto League finals next week and will advance to the All Ireland finals after the Easter holidays. Best of luck to them in their future games!
